Error when booting into windows

I have a pc that started getting  Diskett drive 0 seek failure errors, I called dell and they had me replace the harddrive. It loaded windows then on the reboot it came back to the same error. I have tried to boot into BIO's but it will not, says booting to setup but then comes back to the same error. Any suggestions? PC is a Dell Precision Workstation 530.

Hi shawkins331,

It's possible that you might have a bad motherboard since you can't access the BIOS. Can you get into Safe Mode?
